We have 5 "big" flavors of hot sauce that are available year round and in stores: Heady Pepper (made with the world famous Heady Topper IPA), Maple Sugar Shack Sriracha, Cilantro Onion, Smoked Onion, and Vermont Habs. All other flavors are made in small 24-150 bottle batches on our back porch. If you like a flavor, buy a lot, because it might never be made again. It's fun to keep you on your toes that way.
The hot sauces all come in those standard 5oz woozy hot sauce bottles. As for ingredients, these are all vinegar based hot sauces with no gums or fillers. The ingredients (besides Vermont grown peppers, organic white vinegar and salt) are generally right there in the title. Send us a quick email if you need more specific details on a given flavor.
Are you wondering why a bakery is making hot sauce? Or who are the fine farmers who are growing the peppers that give our hot sauces their great flavors? Check out our Hot Sauce Story.

The big flavors:
Maple Sugar Shack Sriracha - Garlicky maple sweet heat. This is one of our most popular hot sauces and is made with some spectacular red jalapenos, organic garlic scapes and pure Vermont maple syrup
Vermont Habs - Nothing but Vermont's beautiful, fruity, kick you in the face habanero peppers, organic white vinegar and salt. This one is plenty hot.
Heady Pepper - Made with the world famous Heady Topper IPA, this medium hot hot sauce is made with green jalapenos and will deliver you right up to hop sauce heaven.
Smoked Onion - This is our newest "big" hot sauce. We maplewood smoke Vermont onions and cook them up with red Vermont jalapenos. This is a truly spectacular hot sauce that might just be my new favorite.
Cilantro Onion - straight forward with mid-level heat this is our signature "use on anything and everything" hot sauce made with green jalapenos, robust cilantro and sweet Vermont onions.
The micro batches:
#1533 Scape Sauce - This is not actually a hot sauce as it contains no heat or peppers. But I make it just like I make the hot sauces, but with garlic scapes instead of peppers (scapes are the lovely green curly cues that grow above ground on a garlic plant). The vibrant garlic flavor of the part of the garlic plant that farmers usually turn back into the soil makes for a thick and versatile sauce.
#1543 Elderflower Ghost - We found a hidden box of Dog River Farm ghost peppers and just had to make a batch of our most popular ghost pepper hot sauce. This blazingly hot sauce is rounded out wonderfully with Dunc's Mill Elderflower Rum.
#1607 Mirepoix - Mirepoix is the holy trinity of French cooking. Vermont onions, carrots and celeriac combine beautifully to create a rich base to this wonderful mid-level spicy jalapeno hot sauce.
#1612 Onion Crusher - Crusher IPA from The Alchemist Brewery is an intensely hoppy beer that makes for a lively dance with green jalapenos from True Love Farm. Vermont grown onions round out this hot sauce to create a “use it everywhere” medium hot craft beer hot sauce.
#1614 Salted Apple Argument - Who doesn’t love a good salty argument? Argument IPA is Queen City Brewery’s English style IPA. It’s smoother than a traditional American IPA and blends nicely with Vermont apples, Vermont jalapenos, and swift salty kick. This is a medium hot sauce.
#1618 Honey Squash - Dog River Farm butternut squash, Singing Cedars Apiaries honey and True Love Farm jalapenos give you the taste of a New England fall rounded out with robustly flavored, medium hot green jalapenos. This is a great hot sauce for thick soups, cheeses and roast vegetables.
Genersaucity! #1620 Good Hombres - 100% of the net profits from this Genersaucity hot sauce go straight to the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program. This is a tequila lime hot sauce made with Applalachian Gap's Papilio VTquila, organic lime juice and a mix of True Love Farm's Jalapenos and Stillmeadow Garden's hot wax peppers. This is medium hot and wonderful on eggs or in a Bloody Maria mixed drink.
#1622 So Not Hot Sauce - The trinidad seasoning peppers has all the tropical flavor of a trinidad varietal, but zero heat. It tastes like it will kick you in the face and then it just doesn't. This is a fantastic hot sauce for kids, and those who just don't want a kick in the face.
